obama and the senate democrats' cross hairs right now. but we did receive helpful advice from joe biden. if you have any threats at home, go at home with a double barreled shotgun and fired into the air. that is useful if you are being attacked by a flock of geese. [laughter] or a drone. [laughter] [cheers] so maybe joe biden stumbled onto something after all. this past week, we had a hearing in the senate judiciary committee. a senior democrat explained to me that questions about the constitution have no role in the u.s. senate. [crowd boos] because, she explains, it is congress' job to pass laws and the supreme court can decide whether to throw them out or not. do you know what? that statement is exactly the problem.

, what happens? how does this continue to happen? >> we need leadership out of president obama. he said the right thing back in '09 when he signed the order saying that guantanamo was a blight on our reputation and it had to be closed. but then he lacked the leadership to follow through on his promise, a and we're here four years later. as david said, you have pennsylvania who have been there for 11 years. you've been cleared for release or transfer. you face no charge. the u.s. said they don't want to keep you but you're still locked up behind bars. hunger strike something just about all there is to do to call attention to your plight. >> michael: david, i want to have you, commercial flights have been banned, stopped going into guantanamo. what kind of an affect is this having? you know, you see it's an isolated prison but they're isolating it even more. is the american government just dropping the ball on this thing like nothing else right now? >> i wouldn't say that they're dropping the ball. i would rather say that they're circling the wagons. this move of canceling private carrier
obama. >> greta: you raise benghazi. >> right. >> greta: and you've been pushing that issue for quite some time. tell me, what is your next step? >> we're finally getting people to come forward and talk. they're afraid to come forward, a lot of them work for the government. i want the families to know what happened that night and american people know what happened on the ground. and look at pushing susan rice's story, this was by a hateful event crumbled. who did they ask from, why was snow help provided. >> greta: you think you can ask the survivors to the extent you get to know them and that's an issue to get their names. but the house of representatives, your party is in the majority and for whatever reason hasn't issued subpoenas for that information. you know, they could issue subpoenas and demand people come forward. >> i believe the attitude of the house leadership is changing when it comes to benghazi, they're going to be more aggressive. you make a good point u i've written cia director brennan, secretary of state john kerry provide the names to the congress and interview the
fields of the region and the peace process. overall, president obama sets the right tone this week during this, his first trip to israel since taking office. but there's certainly a lot of hard work ahead, if he hopes to make any real inroads towards peace and deal with huge dangers in the region now. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by, and john king are joining us from amman, jordan, where the president wrapped up his trip. he has done well in jordan, now the hard work begins. where do we go from here? >> reporter: the white house feels he accomplished what they set out as his primary goal, which was to reconnect with the israeli people and convince them that he understands where they're coming from on the primary security issues. the big question as you point out, can this lead to real accomplishments, that would be on the peace front with palestinians, simply too many questions that remain outstanding when it comes to settlements and exchange of prisoners, other major issues that the arab world and palestinians are unsatisfied with. and syria, iran, these
people's rights to a jewish state. >> president obama in israel -- the chill is gone. >> i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations. >> rand paul, the man with a plan. >> i call the plan trust but verify. >> republicans look at what went wrong in 2012. >> when republicans lost in november, it was a wake-up call. >> the war in iraq 10 years later, the budget that refuses to die. >> our budget plan reduces the deficit without raising taxes. >> the republican plan is the same baby with a new diaper. >> we know tt until recentl president obama and israeli prime minister netanyahu enjoyed what can be politely described as a somewhat strained relationship. on april 7 of last year, the "new york times" reported benjamin netanyahu and mitt romney enjoyed a warm relationship. almost one year later, the israelis have given obama a medal. they appear to be on the same page on iran. >> diplomacy and sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear programs. diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of military action. >> we will do
trip in that president obama is advancing the secretary of state, who is here right now, but will be coming back pretty frequently, so president obama is not going to -- he's going to talk about the palestinian issue in his business speech tomorrow, i think, but bakley he's trying to set the stage to reset the relationship with israel, with its government in particular so that john kerry can come in and with new ideas and be received, better than some of obama's first-term ideas were received. so there is a point to this trip, but it's a building block trip. >>> jeff goldberg, thank you very much, as always. >> thank you. >>> and up next, in our "daily fix" who killed the senate assault weapons ban. >>> plus mark sanford survives round 1 in south carolina, and why is bill clinton getting involved in the kentucky democratic senate race against ashley judd? send me your thoughts on facebook and twitter. this is "andrea mitchell reports" live in israel, only on msnbc.

to be president. president obama gets to be president. right? and the reason he gets to be president is because he won a majority of not only the electoral college, which is sufficient, but also the popular vote. >> he would have won more if they had teamed up. >> i'm telling you, there's two or three states i'm certain we could have given over. >> right. >> look, i am convinced that part of what we're seeing now in the republican party is a kind of -- like they were so sure that they could not change the minds of voters but suppress voters from having an opportunity to put their own opinions on those ballots that they are at a loss because they didn't know what to do on the other side if they were going to lose. we really saw that shock from republican operatives on election night. >> we saw the meltdown of rove on fox. >> right. >> you know, e.j., when you look at rnc chairman priebus and he's saying republicans are going to start reaching out more to african-americans, listen to this. >> you've got a party that hasn't been deep enough in the communities on a permanent basis. we're going to go h
of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans continue to elect them. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from lower manhattan dr. marc lamont hill who teaches at columbia university. do you think the program the caucus is putting forth will ever happen in this country? >> no. i think that's a template for a kind a progressive provision. like the tea party. it's not what's going to happen it represents a particular framework ideology happens somewhere in the middle. i wouldn't freak out about the cpc budget coming through. >> bill: did i sound like i was freaking out because i didn't want to sound like i was freaking out. >> you never sound like you are freaking out. i'm worried about the millions of people watching this who think that suddenly there is going to be tax seizures. >> let's both of us remind everybody not to freak out. you are sympath
conditions the to the two leaders. we heard and president obama's speech from a very important statement, saying he recognizes israel as the historic homeland of the jewish people. the cigna dickens is the american president recognizing pre-holocaust, giving absolute confirmation of israel's right to exist and also the historical basis on which the state of israel does exist. a very important statement from president obama, once again, setting the tone for what he hopes and what his intention is, to create a warmer relationship, warmer understanding with the israeli leader and the new government that has been sworn in only a few days ago. obamast netanyahu and made a point of saying we have a vision of the middle east which has freedom, prosperity, and piece. we seek peace with our palestinian neighbors. but actually the whole prospect of further negotiations between israel and the palestinians, that is very much being doubted, very low expectations on that front. >> certainly, it has been made very clear that president obama is not bringing any new initiatives, not bringing any new dema

right. if you thought it was only president barack obama who mastered the art of sequester scare tactics and apocalypse, i've got news for you, he's not alone. somehow senator majority leader harry reid taken it to a new low level. a shameful display on the floor of the u.s. senate when the top democrat on capitol hill took it upon himself to imply the tragic accident that took the lives of seven marines in nevada on monday happened because of the sequester. if case you missed senator reid's incredibly insensitive, stupid, idiotic state. well, here it is. >> mr. president, late last night seven of our marines were called in hawthorne and many others were injured in that explosion during a training exercise here the ammunition depot. it's important we keep training our military. but one of the things of the sequester is we cut back in training and maintenance that's the way the sequester was written, it's just not appropriate, mr. president that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary. these men and women, our marines were training there at hawthorne and with the sequest

this to the right conclusion. >> small boots, special capabilities. president obama has called this a game changer. if chemical weapons are involved, he calls this a game changer. but he said, mr. chairman, that he would bring in the international community, which doesn't sound like aggressive american action. in your judgment, is the president behind the eight ball on this story? >> you have 70,000 dead. the situation there has deteriorated badly. listen, i think we are behind the eight ball. when the opposition initially tells the secretary of state of the united states we're not interested in a meeting, we've got to a huge problem. they're not buying into this political coalition that's being plopped on folks that are really fighting on the ground. thats a problem. if you really believe in a diplomatic solution, you have to have credibility. we can stop the scud missiles from striking civilians. we ought to do that. we can render their ability to deliver chemical weapons useless. we ought to do that. and so we have these special capabilities that can project power without being at the front end

live," i'm megyn kelly. right now, president obama and the israeli prime minister are meeting behind closed doors. we expect to hear them both within the hour. the president's trip comes at a dangerous time for the jewish state and the entire region. to israel's west, questions about the muslim brotherhood and political stability in egypt. and to the east, syria, in the grips of an allout civil war and just 24 hours ago we received reports that chemical weapons may have been used against one side or the other. and of course, there is the constant threat from iran which president obama himself warned could be less than a f having a nuclear weapon. so as we await this historical-making news conference we want to check in with our own leland vittert live with the headlines from israel and syria. >> reporter: megyn, the israelis think may have been used in syria yesterday. but understand that here chemical weapons have a different meaning than the united states. in u.s. you're talking vx gas, sarin gas. and weapons of mass destruction. and the proof of some type of chemical attacks by t
but at a lower rate than it should be. we lost over 700,000 government jobs during the obama administration despite all the right wing talk about him the fact is the deficit is getting smaller and there are fewer and fewer government jobs. the addition of jobs we had last month, 236,000 jobs, 70 those of those were business service jobs. that's a good sign for the future. accountants office workers being hired that employeers expect more business in the future. but the sequester and the press for austerity and the increase of social security tax are all slowing our progress to where we should be. >> michael: of course these companies would be hiring accountants now because they're making so much damn money because they're not paying enough wages to their workers. that's part and parcel of how it works. >> yes remember a fundamental tenant of the chicago school and i went to the chicago school is to get rid of unions, that means driving down wages. i just reported in my column in tax analysts, tax notes, if you take the average increase of income for the bottom 90% of americans from 1966 whe
candidate who is to the left of obama on some issues and to the the right of paul ryan on other issues? >> i think we have a confusing spectrum. this left/right spectrum doesn't always work for people. i think because of some of that confusion it shows that someone like myself i think could appeal to young people independents and moderates because many of them do think it is a mistake to put people in jail for marijuana use and throw away the key. i think there are people who would like a less aggressive foreign policy. there are all kinds of issues that don't neatly fit in the left/right paradigm that i think would help because we are not the doing well in a lot of the purple and blue states so we do need a candidate that would appeal across the left/right paradigm. >> chris: we have about 30 seconds left. your budget which would balance the budget your plan would balance the budget in five years. paul ryan's which has come under attack for balancing it in ten years. you introduced it three consecutive years if and the most votes was this weekend when you got 18. isn't that out o of the mai

people are angry and obama is lying to you. we need to make that very, very clear. that's right! \[applause] >> the white house belongs to the conservative and anger is not what it takes. it takes an understanding of who obama is and what he is up to. what he is up to he does very well. hen wants to take this -- he wants to take this country to a state of socialism, which has not been achieved but it came close during the nixon administration. obama is doing what he thinks is good for america. all of us know that every time that has been tried the opposite has happened. people become poorer. except for the few elite at the top who run the political system. obama is doing a good job of trying to achieve socialism in america. the task of conservatives is to do a better job of explaining why socialism doesn't work and why free markets do work. without using the cord compassion but explaining why compassion is capitalism. >> it has to be done on a level where it affects real people. >> you're using brilliant words but most people are going i don't get it. >> we're putting on this ki
